Paris FC vs Valenciennes by Alcuni
With a bit of luck against Niort (lost in 93 minute after an easy awarded penalty for Niort) and Metz (maybe th single game from whole campaign when their best man GK Thebeaux made 2 silly mistakes at both Metz goals), 2 games played one months ago, maybe Paris FC would have some chances for salvation. But losing dramatically those 2 games, the team is relegated despite their very good final fo the season. With 10 points took in latest 5 games (3V1D1L) they are now 6 points behind Evian, but they have a bad goal difference. OK they have some theoretical chances to survive, Sochaux and Evian lost both games and with Creteil taking max 2 points. But they must take 2 huge win in order to have better goal difference than Sochaux and Evian. Almost impossible. But they remained positive despite this situation and took another away win 1-0 over Lens and put an end to their promotion hopes. Scored quite rapid the winning superb goal, having another chances missed by Diarra in first half and heroically resisting in 2nd half in front of a dangerous Lens (players and fanatic fans hihi). Pity for them cause this top of form came too late. As I said, they weren’t a bad team as their position in table and points taken would show, but some mistakes from all parts made them to be in this situation. For me they were golden mine his season thanks to their plenty of draws and will miss me next season.
Valenciennes took an immense win Monday night over leader Nancy, 1-0 thanks to a nice goal scored by Mbenza. They started the game in attack, scoring a rapid goal, after 12 minutes of play and made a perfect defensive game after with some dangerous counterattack (but only few this time). Let Nancy to have the ball, but were few chances when Nancy jeopardized Perquis (who by the way, saved all what he had to save, showing a great form) goals. Was a great performance, keeping in mind was only their third home win, but we must take in consideration also the circumstances – Nancy is already promoted and nothing to play for. Maybe in other circumstances, this win wasn’t quite possible. Now Valenciennes had not a great season. Quite poor in front of their fans, they were much better on the road, collecting more than half of their total tally. They have a lot of youngster in the team and for sure will sell some in the break which will come. Most of the time they rely on their defense and lethal counters taking a lot of point after this approach. They are almost safe, being difficult to believe they can relegate after this huge win. But difficult end of the season, after this game against an inform team, will host on their own pitch another relegation threatened team Niort – who proved they play better away in this end of the season. So they must take at least 1 point in order to stay safe.
Last game for Paris FC at home in this season; Maybe a win against a good team on the road but still bit fatigue after playing an intense game Monday night. gl
